Desert BlueseBook - 2014
On the fifth day of July, 1957, Harold Abelstein’ s father, Norman, tried to make a U-turn on the Pasadena Freeway. A short time later, Harold awoke in a hospital bed battered and parentless. That was bad enough. Worse was that his remaining relative was Aunt Enid and everything about Aunt Enid embarrassed him. Wearing too much make-up and not enough clothes, she talked loudly and touched everyone, especially Harold. He didn’ t like being touched. Having to deal with each other, Harold and Enid are forced to learn important truths about themselves. The result is a poignant, extremely funny tale of misunderstanding, understanding and self-discovery set in the small town which was Palm Springs in the 1950s.
